2. Russian Twist

This works the side abdominals, the obliques, that a lot of exercises miss. Sit with your knees slightly bent and your heels touching the floor. Lean back slightly, at a 45-degree angle, and engage your core. Keeping your feet flexed, hold the ball in front of your chest with two hands and rotate to the right. Come back to center and rotate to the left. Be sure to do the same number of reps on each side.
